L' is used before singular masculine nouns that start with a vowel, such as uomo. Gli is used before plural masculine nouns that start with a vowel, such as uomini. L'uomini unfortunately does not exist, there are a lot of articles to memorize in Italian! Here are a few other examples:
- l'orso (the bear) gli orsi (the bears)
- l'elefante (the elephant) gli elefanti (the elephants)
- l'aeroplano (the airplane) gli aeroplani (the airplanes)
